Would you prefer the old "most downloaded" (which is inaccurate anyway, meaning the show whose download link was clicked the most)? With that you get a static list of 5 shows that are the most downloaded and always will be because they're on that list.

How do you propose we present you with the list of "recordings that sound good" in an automatic fashion?

I sure hope no one proposes, "The ones with the most review stars." (Review ranking really suffers from the "it's all good dude" effect.) :P

{LOL} Yep it sure does but still the reviews feature definitely drives traffic to particular shows. Most intelligent folks can read & write reviews that are, ehem, not "all good" and thereby greatly influence views & downloads.

We've spent some time thinking about an automated way of assigning a "review impact rating" - which might help illuminate well-thought-out reviews. Kind of like at Amazon where you can say "I found/didn't find this review helpful" - except this would be automatic.

More on your other post a little later (busy packing for my impending cross-country move). I really like the ideas you presented in that post - I will definitely bring up them up at our next research meeting.

I would indeed...except refresh/reset the list on occasion to prevent a skewed cumulative statistic. Maybe a "most d/led this month" list?

A bit hard, I'll admit, then again, I'm satisfied with 256K encoded MP3s in many cases. No answer here...

Well, that's still on all the pages, just scroll down a bit.

Monthly stats a bit hard to implement - it means that every single visit needs to be recorded in the database with the time of visit. Right now a count is just incremented.
